Man and horse were down; they had slipped on the sheet of ice which glazed the causeway
It commanded the causeway
where we had hauled up our boat, and, as my eyes adapted themselves to the light of the clouded moon, I saw two men looking into her.
The storm was still abroad in all its wrath as I found myself crossing the old causeway
General, if I am not mistaken, the middle causeway
leads straight to the abbey.
Though I plead guilty to some foolish palpitations of the heart during our headlong rush over the causeway
here constructed, yet it were unjust to withhold the highest encomiums on the boldness of its original conception and the ingenuity of those who executed it.
And, turning his back, he made his way hurriedly along the riverside to the causeway
of flat stones.
Sometimes the rattle of the stones told of a paved causeway
, and at others our smooth, silent course suggested asphalt; but, save by this variation in sound, there was nothing at all which could in the remotest way help me to form a guess as to where we were.
The next pillar was isolated; others composed a trilithon; others were prostrate, their flanks forming a causeway
wide enough for a carriage and it was soon obvious that they made up a forest of monoliths grouped upon the grassy expanse of the plain.
Along the causeway
rode a knight with a score of stout men-at-arms behind him.
He was pacing homewards along the causeway
, and did not turn his head.
As they passed over the drawbridge, Alleyne marked the gleam of arms in the embrasures to right and left, and they had scarce set foot upon the causeway
ere a hoarse blare burst from a bugle, and, with screech of hinge and clank of chain, the ponderous bridge swung up into the air, drawn by unseen hands.
Even on the causeway
forming the fortifications of Tycho, the mountains hanging on to the interior and exterior sloping flanks rose in stories like gigantic terraces.
